C.C. Banana Benefit
The friends of comedian CC Banana are hoping to stave off the imminent loss of his family home. Come bid on items signed by his rock heroes!
NOTE: Click on the "Updates" tab above for the latest news and press coverage of this campaign.
SplitScreen Entertainment, producers of the tribute albums "Kiss My Ankh" and "Whole Lotta Love," is coming to the aid of its friend and colleague, rock & roll comic C.C. Banana. A performer on both of its aforementioned tributes, C.C. Banana is best known for his humorous interviews with members of such legendary rock bands as Kiss, Poison, Cinderella, Quiet Riot and Twisted Sister. He's also interrogated his share of comic industry pros and "Star Wars" icons, including Joe Quesada, Phil Jimenez, Ray Park, Peter Mayhew and even George Lucas. C.C. was recently in the process of recording a solo album (in commemoration of his 10th anniversary) when his family was struck by severe financial hardship, brought on by the sudden decline of an ailing family member. As a result, he is now on the verge of losing the house he has lived in since birth.
In effort to save the family home, SplitScreen Entertainment is organizing a series of auctions on behalf of C.C. Banana, including autographed items from his rock & roll friends and heroes. Also being auctioned are many of C.C. Banana's own rock & roll treasures and pop culture collectibles, including rare and out-of-print CDs, DVDs, action figures, toys and assorted collector's items C.C. has acquired over the years. SplitScreen Entertainment will also be helping in its own way via proceeds from sales of its two albums featuring C.C. Banana. Fans wishing to donate directly may do so via GiveForward in exchange for various levels of rewards. SplitScreen Entertainment will deduct no administrative fees and every cent raised will go toward C.C. Banana's immediate financial concerns.
Donors who contribute in the amounts specified below will receive the following gifts as thanks for their contributions:
$50 - "Whole Lotta Love" cover art poster
$75 - "Kiss My Ankh" or "Whole Lotta Love" CD (donor's choice)
$150 - "C.C. Banana" or "Whole Lotta Love" shirt (donor's choice)
$300 - "Whole Lotta Love" poster, both CDs and shirt of donor's choice
$500 - "Whole Lotta Love" poster signed by 25 members of the talent roster (quantities limited, please inquire before donating)
$1000 - C.C. Banana will write and record a new song parody tailored to your very own specifications (see instructions at bottom)
The latest batch of auctions is viewable via the link below, with more to be added in the coming weeks. SplitScreen Entertainment asks all who have enjoyed C.C. Banana's many interviews and adventures over the years to come to his aid in his time of need. No gesture is too small or unappreciated.

Customized C.C. Banana Song Parody:
If you choose to donate $1000 or more to this fundraiser, C.C. Banana will write and record a new song parody tailored to your very own specifications. You simply provide the info you'd like C.C. to incorporate into the lyrics and select from a list of songs available. C.C. Banana will then write a hilarious new song parody just for you, based on what you have provided him. Do you want him to tell your girlfriend that you love her, to the tune of "Talk Dirty To Me?" No problem! Do you want him to tell your ex-girlfriend she's a skank, to the music of "I Hate Myself for Loving You?" Even better! Maybe you have a great idea to rewrite "I Wanna Rock" to be about your prized geode collection, but you don't know how to make it work. Whatever you decide, you provide the facts and C.C. will provide the funny. Finished song will be a professional-quality, multi-track recording with acoustic guitar and backing vocals (additional instrumentation available upon request). Turnaround time is approximately 4 weeks from date of donation. Please notify us in advance to arrange for this donation option.
